Stampin’ Up! Valentine Sweet Treat Box

I made Valentine Sweet Treat Boxes from the Stampin’ Up! Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies for my share today.  

Valentine Treat


These Popcorn Boxes are so versatile, and they come together quickly.  I used them at Christmas time for little candy treat boxes and really, they can be decorated for any special holiday treats. 


Valentine Treat

I started by creating the Popcorn Boxes with the Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies and the Brights Designer Series Paper Stacks Real Red paper.  For the box on the left, I die cut the large heart from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies and a panel of Sending Love DSP.  I used Gold Foil, Dazzling Diamonds, and Real Red card stock to die cut the medium sized hearts from the Love Notes Framelits Dies.  Next I stamped From Me to You, one of the sentiments from Ready to Pop,  in Versa Mark ink and sprinkled it with Gold Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.  

For the Valentine Sweet Treat box on the right, I used another sentiment from Ready to Pop, and embossed it in Gold also. The Gold Foil arrow was die cut with the Love Notes Framelits.  The Whisper White sentiment heart and the Real Red Heart were also die cut with the Love Notes Framelits and the banner is a panel of the Sending Love DSP cut with the Banner Triple Punch.  

Valentine Sweet

I know I have used quite a few different products today, but I hope I have shown you that if you look carefully at your stamp sets and framelits, you may find many ways to use them!   Now, do I give away these chocolate covered truffle hearts inside the carefully packaged Valentine Sweet Treat boxes (with 6 x 8 Celophane bags), or do I just unwrap them and save them for myself?!!

A complete list of products used for these boxes will be at the end of my post.

Stampin’ Up! Popcorn Box Thinlets for Christmas Treats!

My share for today is another little treat box for Christmas goodies or for a small gift of some kind.  I used the Popcorn Box Thinlets to create both of them. If you’re looking for a really quick and easy treat box, this is it!  And, with all of the great Christmas stamps and accessories this year, the possibilities are endless for decorating your boxes.  Mine are truly very simple!

Popcorn Box


For this Popcorn Box, I used Whisper White card stock and added some Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape to the bottom edge. Then, I stamped the snowflake image from the Tin of Tags stamp set in Versa Mark ink onto a panel of Real Red.  It was then sprinkled with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed with my Heat Tool.  I used one of the Layering Circles Dies to cut it out and then, made one more for the back side.  A Rhinestone Basic Jewel was then  added to both centers.  The banner sentiment is from Star of Light and is also heat embossed with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  The 6 x 8 Cellophane Bag is tied with strands of the Candy Cane Lane Baker’s Twine.  


Popcorn Box


This Popcorn Box was created with Real Red card stock and more of the Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape.  I used a sentiment from Candy Cane Christmas  and stamped it in Real Red ink onto a Whisper White panel.  Then, I used one of the new Stitched Shape Framelits Dies to cut it out.  The candy cane is also from Candy Cane Christmas and was fussy cut out.  I added a bow to it using some Emerald Envy Baker’s Twine.  

If you have not used the Popcorn Box Thinlets Dies you may want to watch this great lesson  on assembly of the box.

Stampin’ Up! Jar of Love Fall Treat Box

I have a fun little treat box to share with you today.  Since it is October 1st, I thought it fitting to begin the month with something more fall-ish.  Even though I have seen very little fall weather, I know someone reading this is probably experiencing it!  And, I hope enjoying it!  

This month is just the beginning of a season of treat giving, too.  All of the store aisles are packed with Halloween candies, then there will be all of the fall flavors of Thanksgiving and of course, all of the cookies, candies, and homemade deliciousness of Christmas .  So, a little treat box to hold all of these goodies is in order, or maybe three!


treat box


This treat box is so easy to make!  I used Kraft card stock for the actual box.  The details on the size and score lines are at the end of the post.  I used the Acorny Thank You stamp set for the acorns.  They are stamped in Soft Suede, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  I punched them out with the Acorn Builder Punch.  The leaves are stamped with the Vintage Leaves stamp set.  I used Soft Suede ink on Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie card stock and die cut them with the Leaflets Framelits.


treat box


I pulled out the largest jar from Jar of Love and stamped it in Soft Suede ink onto my Kraft card stock, then die cut the center with Everyday Jars Framelits.  The jar lid was also stamped with Soft Suede and die cut.  I popped the lid onto the treat box with dimensionals, then added the acorn/leaf bundle with some glue dots.  A length of Gold Baker’s Twine was tied into a bow and also added with a glue dot.
